, a newspaper that hasn't endorsed a republican in 40 years, now they were for obama four years ago, they switched. the fact is, the paper in florida did the same thing, pro-obama, it switched. in ohio, we clearly have gained ground. i think across the country, we have. the washington post poll, i doubt that virginia wiobama wil virginia. don't know if it's the economy or the benghazi. if the president is telling the truth and he instructed his assistants to get aid to benghazi, we're being told that the secretary of defense canceled that. you notice that he's cancelling his trips over the hurricane. he didn't cancel his trips over benghazi and you have to wonder, between benghazi, the price of gasoline and unemployment just how much the burden the president is going to carry into this last week. >> he does have a burden. at the same time, he's built up a lead in some of these battle ground states. it raised the prospect of governor romney winning the popular vote . >> i don't know what he means by we won't accept it. we're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think romney will wi
barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state. it only b became democratically presidential -- presidentiay democraratic recently. but the proroblem romney is that unless he real gets surge that covers a lot of these states, if he loses ohio and virginia, let's say, or ohio and ioiowa or ohio and wisconsin, he has to run the table on the other ones. >> you will get confused unless you are a jockey, but everybody seems agree that the path is clearer and simpler for obama than for romney, even though t. is such close race. it is easier to see the combinatn that gets -- >> a lot of talk about potential es in the electoral college. >> which i think is our reach, but let's be blunt about it, the momentum is in romney's direction has been since the first debate. nina's mention of new hampshire -- their only three states from 2000 to 2004 from bu-court to bush-carry -- bush-gore to bush- kerry. that is how clely thdivided the country was then and it remai now. >> there is a different view, that the so-called romney surge is a myth whe
and the republicans are getting the new turn out. >>juan: but the results are obama is beating romney on votes cast. karl: not in obama. >>chris: time out. time out. time out two questions, and i want to talk about the disparity between the national polls and the state polls, is it possible we are headed for another 2000 where you could have romney win the popular vote in this case and obama win the electoral vote >> we could. when you have the margin as big nationally as it appears in the national polls you will have state polls follow. but something else could be at play, we are giving all the polls a precision they don't have. take ohio, there have been 21 polls sin the first debate. in 15 or 16, romney led among the independents by an average of 13 points. obama has led among independents by two, and two polls they didn't break out by democrat or republican or independent. it is hard to believe if romney is leading among republicans by the margins he is and leading among democrats or among independents by an average of 13 that he will not win. >>chris: a last question, you have this map like i

the newspaper picked the republican nominee. while the editors praise president obama's early efforts to revitalize the economy through his stimulus plan, it concluded his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest he would lead in the direction the nation must go in the next four years. joining me now for the politics of weather and everything else is obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod. good morning, david. let me start here with the storm. when you look at virginia where this is likely to be the swing state most affected, does anything worry you about that state being more or less paralyzed by weather for a couple three, four days? >> well, the first thing i think we should say is we're most concerned about people. this storm could affect 50 million americans. the president has been in close contact with fema and dhs and all the agencies that have responsibility here to make sure we're doing everything we can for people, and that's what he is going to continue to do throughout this -- throughout this storm, and in terms of how it affects the election, i don'

. >> and ohio has been critical. in fact, necessary to every republican presidential win. but president obama has held on to a small lead there. his strategists are buoyed by choosing an overwhelming 2-1 lead for the president among early voters. the president staged the finale of his 48-hour marathon campaign in ohio. >> i am glad to be back in cleveland, ohio. >> despite the money, the trips, and the speeches, ohio wree main stubbornly in the toss-up category. a cnn poll reveals the president with a 50% to 46% lead. former ohio governor ted strickland and virginia governor bobbing mcdonnell up next. dad's tablet... or lauren's smartphone... at&t has a plan built to help make families' lives easier. introducing at&t mobile share. one plan lets you share data on up to 10 devices with unlimited talk and text. add a tablet for only $10 per month. at&t. add a tablet for only $10 per month. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind
key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio who played president obama in romney's debate prep. 18 electoral votes in play in a state obama won in '08 by 4.6 points and now leading by 2.3 points in the the latest realclearpolitics average of recent polls. republican ron johnson of wisconsin, ten electoral votes at stake. obama won by almost 14 points last time and now leading by 2.3. democrat mark warner of virginia. obama won its 13 elector aral votes by 6 points is four years ago but now tied with romney and democrat mark udall of colorado. obama won the nine electoral votes last time by nine points. the race there now dead even. senator portman let's start with the state that most people think may decide this race and that is ohio. the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in the state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country while the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris first of all, you mentioned the real clear poll techs average in ohio being 2.3% in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9% actually and that is
will be bipartisan. i can't help but want to point out that the republicans for the entirety of obama's term have said no, no, no. and so what they're really say something we've been nasty when there's a democrat as president. but elect a republican and we'll be happy to work for him. this is kind of political extortion. >> i want to button this conversation up with what i think is an overarching point. that really does frame the last nine days. we were told this was going to be the ultimate clarifying campaign. two distinct choices. now i feel nine days out -- a fair amount of uncertainty. there's the question of which mitt romney are you going to get if he becomes president and there's the question of, what's the second term for president obama going to look like? >> i want to talk about the last nine days, we were talking about how mitt romney has a message advantage in this respect -- he gets to say the same thing for the next nine days. because all he's trying to do is win over the swing voting women, if it's the reason why you don't hear the larger message, because he can't do it. >> david,
consulate can't be blamed on a video insulting islamic. >> the republican presidential ticket is hitting obama hard, sake he is ducking responsibility for the attack. >> what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling obama foreign policy. >> october 16th. at the second presidential debate, romney and obama face off. they highlight the charges and counter charges over whether president obama took the benghazi attack and by implication the terror threat seriously enough. >> as soon as we found out benghazi consulate was overrun. i was on the funny. >> the president the day after flies to a political fund-raiser. >> day after the attack, governor, i stood in the rose garden and i told the american people that this was an act of terror and the suggestion that anybody in my team would play politics or mislead when we have lost four of our own is offensive. >> mr. president, 14 days he called it an act of terror. >> six days later. >> the first question, it concerns libya. >> october 22nd, the final presidential debate. >> governor rom you said this is an example of an american polic
preferring obama over him but this week, indiana republican senate candidate richard mourdock talked about having no exceptions at all in the case of abortion. let's take a look: >> live is a gift from god and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation, of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> chris: senator johnson, mitt romney disavowed richard mourdock's comments and, he has tried to walk them back but it brings up the bigger question. why should a woman who believes of freedom of choice when it comes to abortion, why should she vote for mitt romney, who said he'd like to see roe vs. wade overturned and who favors cutting off all federal funding for planned parenthood? >> well, chris, first of all, i have heard one person talk about the abortion issue during the entire campaign. what people in wisconsin, what is moving the needle here is they recognize mitt romney is an individual, who when faced with the legislature controlled by democrats is actually able to work with the democrats and look at his record, versus president obama, who has been totally
republicans used to win but trended democratic over the last 20 years. on the cultural issues and he has to win them over economic and stewardship and foreign policy get the white nonblue collar. obama campaign baraged ohio with ads. biggest anti-romney ads he's outsourced job to china and he fired me and my wife got cancer and all of that sort of thing. they have seen it in ohio and white noncollege voters in ohio are considerably not likely to support romney than in other states. there are different ohios and he has to gain in different places on different issues and appeals. >> michael you looked deeper in ohio and picked out one county that may be the key to the state of ohio. why and which county. franklin county includes the state capt capt of -- capital of columbus. franklin was a republican stronghold and a solidly republican. and columbus is the fastest growing metroarea in ohio and only one with vast population growth and economic growth. there is it a white collar population there and ohio state university is there and largest state universities in the world and university tha
and a questionable outcome. if it goes in favor of mitt romney, -- republican, but i am leaning toward obama. if mitt romney wins, the 47% are not going to be happy. i am a republican, but it seems like if you vote for mitt romney, you are voting for the future. i am disabled and have children. i kind of feel selfish of five votes for obama because it might help us now. if i thought for mitt romney it might help -- if i voted my, children down the road. host: the earlier caller talking about voters oppression. a couple of editorials we want to share with you. from mitt romney's hometown of in detroit. top reasons to re-elect barack obama is what the editorial says. with a myriad of conflicts that enter the middle east, not to mention the u.s. tense relations with china and russia, the president has to have a steady, learned hand on the tiller. mitt romney does not have that hand. obama's first term prove he can deliver at home under the worst imaginable circumstances, battling multiple crisis that individually would have saw lesser presidents. abroad, obama has restored american credibility and influ
issue for republicans. and the polling in north carolina still suggests that the president -- that obama care is still not very popular in north carolina although you start taking pieces of that like preexisting conditions and that sort of thing, it becomes various parts of it are more popular with the public. it's been a tough sell in north carolina. i think it's one of the reasons for example in 2010 that the state legislature went republican. it's one of the reasons that democratic congressmen lost his congressional seat here in north carolina. so it's been a tough issue for democrats. i don't think there's any question about that and a good issue for republicans. host: rob christensen talking to us from north carolina. you can read some of his writings at news observer.com. host: what are you going to be watching for on election night in north carolina? guest: the national presidential race is why people are looking at north carolina. but in the state we have -- it's been a battleground -- we have several battlegrounds going on. we have a governor's race going on. north carolina has
that group. but the where republicans are falling short is among the single group where obama is doing well, remember the ad where he said government is going to help you here, help you here, republicans have not offered a counter help you. >> i want to go to chuck's point about the republican right. one thing we've seen in this election. the right wing lost this election. mitt romney signaled that in the first debate where he said you know all this tea party stuff we've been running on for two years, i know i can't win the election on that, i'm going somewhere else. the second point is you saw something interesting in that mourdock example, in terms of how mitt romney responds to the pressures in his own party.ha he could have pulled down the ad that he made for richard mourdock. and he refused to pull that ad down. in the third thing is the whole discussion of i will be bipartisan. i can't help but want to point out that the republicans for the entirety of obama's term have said no, no, no. and so what they're really say something we've been nasty when there's a democrat as president. but
game for the republicans is very strong. a lot of things about obama has been the ground game they have developed since 2008. it's been so efficient. so many field offices. wisconsin is the state where they had the recent recall where republicans invested in the get out the vote. it could be where you get the surprise. >> it's strong for progressives and organized labor because not just the governor's recall election, but the state house recall election, which actually went the other way. i have said from the beginning, which is a nice thing to be able to say, no matter what happens in the news and the polls, here is going to be my analysis of it for the rest of the election. i's going to come down to election administration. it's scary. i think, really, it's been wonderful to see the galvanizing of, you know, right and left around how important the rules are for who gets to vote, what the deadline is for registering, whose ballot gets counted and how and when. it's what comes down to it when we are talking ability a very small sector of the eligible people in this country who actually
in the southwestern part of the state that increasingly have voted republican in the elections. host:. . is 20 electoral votes. obama won by 10 percentage points. unemployment is mirroring what we have nationwide, 8.2%. neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with their 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes ohio more of a battleground than pennsylvania at the moment? guest: the essential differences ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to either vote republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the recent democrats have done well is because they have captured the suburbs in our state in the recent presidential elections which has been the defining difference. in the middle of ohio and columbus, that is a battleground. there, obviously with cleveland, but in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and cincinnati and out west be more republican. ohio just has a larger pool of these swing voters, if you will, and are more evenly balanced between the democratic and republ
that mean with a republican congress versus re-electing president obama? so these people undecided voters are informed. they are thoughtful, and even the swing voters who are leaning one way or the other, they understand the complexities of the election. they don't want to be talked down to. they want to be offered specifics and solutions. >> well, safe travels to you and ali velshi. thanks for getting up early. >> thanks, brook. any time. >>> coming up here we're going to talk about kwefshl comments on rape. another senate candidate puts his foot in it here, but nicolas krzysztof says let's not focus on that statement. wait until you hear where he is actually directing his outrage. jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring. [ jack ] after lauren broke up with me, i went to the citi private pass page and decided to be...not boring. that's how i met marilyn... giada... really good. yes! [ jack ] ...and alicia. ♪ this girl is on fire [ male announcer ] use any citi® card to get the benefits of private pass. more concerts. more events. more experiences. [ jack ] hey, who's boring now?
a tremendous ground operation here. the obama campaign has something like 54 offices here and the republicans have something like 22 offices here. we have a tremendous amount of energy going into the ground operation. there is a tremendous amount of surrogates coming in almost every day like governors and celebrities and other people. there is a tremendous intensity of campaigning here just not the principles. host: you mentioned governor romney and his meeting with billy graham. talk to was more about that. does dr. graham, maybe his family members and sun, are they taking an active role in the romney campaign? are they just giving their blessing to say that for evangelicals and people of faith in north carolina that it is ok to go ahead and support a mormon? guest: it is very close to an endorsement. you might as well call it an endorsement. he did not say to vote for him but it was close to it. i don't think you can underestimate the importance of billy graham giving his blessing to a candidate because he is a widely respected figure in north carolina. north carolina is part of the bible b
. the way i was brought up. democrat or republican. that was patriotism. the obama late night talk show mirn tour continued this week the president was on jay leno. >> you know, i was fine with up until about 7th grade. and then malea is a fresh man in high school and i am pretty lost. >> yeah, i know >> it is it tough and fortunatelygreat stud. and you know, if something doesn't work. i will call over to the department of the energy and see if they have a phycist. >> aing the math skills don't go above the 7th grade. i am glad he acknowledged it. i was watchinglet policies and wondered why he can't figure it out. he was on david letterman and asked about the national debt. he doesn't know. and mr. president, it is it 16 trillion dollars and some change. a lot of change and geth bigger all of the time here's another math piece that you might need to be aware of 23 million americans don't have a yob and many who do have half the job they once had a few years ago. that may be above the 7th grade math skills but i am telling you, people hope if you are relerksected you get a tutor and understan
for republicans. go ahead, nicki. >> i want to say i'm for romney this year. i gave obama a chance for years and he's gotten worse. i'm not racist. everybody keeps saying he's half black and half white. but this ain't got nothing do with parties or race or anything. it's got something to do with the country. >> you voted for the president in 2008. you say you will not vote for him in 2012. what's the difference between then and now. >> well, look at the economy. >> all right, we will leave it there. the economy, gideon moore, you get the last word. >> i think she makes a great point in terms of looking at the fact is that the difference between 2008 and 2012 is that obama did not have a record to run on in 2008. he ran on some very strong promises, some strong rhetoric. he didn't deliver on those. now moving into the future, look at the record of what he's delivered and i think a lot of americans and a lot of north carolinaens are coming to the realization he's not the man for the job to lead us for the next four years and that mitt romney is. >> gideon moore is the chairman of the mecklenbu
is a big prize and as president obama stumped there, republican challenger mitt romney was trying to nail down support in florida. >> we are going to win this, you know that. >> going into the last full week of the presidential campaign, both candidates are reaching out to undecided voters. >> i'm asking you to compare my plan with governor romney's. i want you to know what we are proposing, each of us. and see which plan is better for you. >> four years ago, then candidate barack obama spoke about big things. but now he's reduced to talking about small things. he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. >> while early voting is underway in several states, the threat of hurricane sandy is throwing both campaigns into disarray. governor romney and paul ryan were forced to cancel events in virginia and turn their attention to ohio, the state that's looking more and more like a clincher. brian moore, wbal-tv 11 news. >> stay with us, much more ahead on 11 news sunday morning. >> she may have to share the spotlight with hurricane sandy but the statue of liberty is set to reopen today on
the economy. it marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican and the presidential general election. meanwhile, president obama has added the "new york times" to his endorsement column, the editorial page listed obama's achievement like saving the auto industry and health care reform as reasons for the endorsement. it he has not backed a republican since dwight eisenhower. >> ohio considered quite the price that could win either condition dat at the house. >> obama is scheduled to leave washington, he's not scheduled to leave washington today in fact he's staying close to the white house because of this storm. >> in newest poll in the state of ohio says mitt romney may have condition to be concerned. as we have said, it's a close rate there, we have asked likely voters who their choice is for president. barack obama has a 50%, a 46% margin over mitt romney -- they both have spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on the calendar. >>> critical information for millions of people to know, as hurricane sandy approaches the northeast, j
president obama for not keeping all his promises when the republicans all agreed when he first became president to stop him every step of the way? when they agreed to not let him succeed? because he's a black man, they do not want to see a black president succeed. they would rather let the country fall off a cliff than see a black man succeed. guest: i'd strongly disagree with that assertion. when he came in power he had filibuster approved majority in the senate and he chose not to work with republicans at that time moderate republicans who have worked with democrats throughout the past. he focused on getting the healthcare law pushed through without considering republican options. and i think that poisoned everything for moving forward. so i would strongly disagree with that in terms of he had plenty of chances to deliver on the promises he made and he didn't. and during that period he chose not to work with republicans. host: next up is fill in north carolina on our independent line. caller: i just wanted to say that despite the media blackout gary johnson is going to have a profou
. republican senators are now demanding that the obama administration declassify and even make public their surveillance video that turns out was recorded in thedale deadly raid. it is believed there may be audio recordings, of requests for help that night. perhaps the biggest question the republicans want answered was why was america not better prepared to defend a diplomatic compound in one of the most dangerous and volatile areas of the world, particularly on 9/11. would these recordings answer all the questions surrounding the administration's response? let's bring in the former assistant secretary of defense, bing west. >> good morning. >> jamie: i imagine although three prominent republicans are asking for these, that they are not alone? >> i think the american public really is not focused on this because only fox is covering it. but when you stand back on 9/11, our ambassador was killed in a countriy that that we had helped to free. it our national security system, the white house, the state department, and the pentagon didn't help them. and holy smokes, the system broke down.
